    Bump Fire stocks may be regulated as class 3 items

    I was at my local gun range monthly meeting and one of the class 3 dealers in town said that the ATF is apparently looking at classifying the SSAR 15 stocks as class 3 items since they can't ban them they are just going to hevily restrict them since they work so good.

    Doesn't surprise me in the wake of Auroa shooting and Holmes didn't use a bump-fire stock. Can you imagine how nuts the anti-gunners would be if Holmes had used one on his AR-15 during the shooting? Many of them would be outraged enough that such a thing exsists to make an AR -15 "full auto." But then again many of them think those evil black rifles are already are full auto so what is the difference?

    Might as well cut the fingers off people who like to rapidly pull the trigger on semiautos. Thoes are full auto assault fingers!

    Leave it to the government to ban a wobbly stock.

    Well live and learn. I didn't know that these existed though it took just a moment to understand why somebody would come up with the idea. But with a longer period of thought I still can't understand why someone would spend their money on one. Oh well, back to my coffee.

    I've been trying to talk a friend of mine into getting one for his AK. Simply because when I told him about it his eyes got really big and he laughed. A lot. Of course it serves no real purpose other than just to be a lot of fun- mag dumps once or twice a range trip would be awesome.

    But, again, no practical purpose. It's kinda like getting a 33rnd Glock magazine, or a 15 rounds magazine for your 1911- you don't need it, but you need it.

    I can understand why the government would want to regulate it- since they regulate suppressors and full auto weapons. ...but they don't do a very good job regulating driver's licences, and stupid people's procreation...

    Eh, oh well.

    My buddy has one on his AR. And surprisingly it is VERY accurate and VERY controllable. We timed it, if we had an unlimited amount of ammo, we could get off around 900 rounds a minute.

    By restricting drum mags and bump stocks, they may produce the unwanted effect of making the nut jobs use better equipment and increase their body counts

    I find he back pedaling to be amusing. Not sure of other brands but Slidefire Solutions comes with a letter from the ATF stating that this is an unrestriced item. Essentialy (as we all know) it is no different than rapidly pulling the trigger.

    I would love to try one out but my range has an assortment of full autos so really bumpfire has no use to me. Frankly Im not really interested in full auto simply because the cost to shoot coupled with more desire to just shoot it vs challengine myself to accuratley hit the target.

    I digress though, like any pro 2A guy all I have left to say is, "shall not be infringed!"

    When humpity-bumpity stocks are outlawed, only OUTLAWS will have humpity-bumpity stocks. I knew this was coming the moment I fired a friend's SSAR 15. Leave it to the ATF to allow written permission for someone to invent, develop, invest, market, manufacture, sell & distribute a high-quality, well-engineered, popular new American product...and only THEN decide to change their mind and require Class 3 registration. Federal regulations are STOMPING the LIFE out of any entrepreneurial spirit that dares to draw a breath in this country. It's no wonder that the smart money is moving away to nations that promote innovative private enterprise. Ray Crock & Sam Walton could have never built McDonalds (calorie guidelines) or Walmart (trade restrictions) under today's unrelenting, nanny-goat governmental supervision. This SSAR thing is just a micro-snapshot of a macro-ecomonic disaster that's contributing to the decline of a once powerful business SUPERPOWER...us.

    They are actually pretty accurate for burst,since other bump fire methods work shooting from the hip instead of firing from the shoulder.I have access to several real FA guns that I don't have to "rent" just supply the ammo,between an M16 and the bump fire stock they group about the same with short bursts,the difference is the M16 just pull the trigger,the bump fire you push the forearm forward with enough pressure to keep it cycling,I'm sure if you shot it enough to develope muscle memory in the process it wouldn't be a whole lot different from a FA M16/M4 and I'm pretty sure the ATF has caught heat from a lot of Police Chiefs/Sheriffs that don't like us to have AR15/AK47 style weapons in the first place
